Templates in Page Bundle

Hi everyone, I freshly arrived at this Discourse, I hope you’re all doing well.

So, I have an apparently unusual usecase for SSGs that I’m having trouble solving.
I would like to have a page that has a consistent navigation and some other helpers, but a lot of the pages should otherwise be styled completely independently. The idea is for a portfolio/projects website where a lot of creativity is expressed in the project pages.

This is definitely possible with Hugo, but from what I can tell I would have to place all layouts and partials for those mostly different sites in the templates directory. What I would really like is to be able to encapsulate them so they can be used independently, only depending on a few partials common between them, and a shell layout.
I’ve looked into Page Bundles, but it seems that I cannot add partials there either, so I’m a bit stuck. Is there a way to do these independent sites in Hugo? Do you have suggestions for a different workflow/tool?

Thx everyone, have a nice day :slight_smile:


You can call partials directly from a content file with Inline Shortcodes.
